a lesson plan exchange service on STEAM Education. Give to receive! Click here to X-Change!
If X= knowledge, we are exchanging it!
X-Change is a service for exchanging Lesson Plans between STEAM educators. It is a way of sharing knowledge and exchanging teaching resources, in which we transmit to other colleagues lesson plans that we have written or that we have already used. We recycle our knowledge of STEAM Education.
What is a Lesson Plan?
It is a tutorial that demonstrates how a specific STEAM educational activity is carried out or a document that contains information necessary to carry out a practical task in the context of a STEAM Education activity!
Each lesson plan received by EASE is reviewed and if selected, credits will be given to the account of the author who submits each lesson plan.
With the credits you collect, you can access other Lesson Plans from European colleagues, exchanging EASE credits you’ve accumulated.
This service has no profit goals and EASE credits only serve to value the contribution of each one.
However, EASE members receive automatically a certain amount of credits with their membership.
How does it work?
- Create an EASE account;
- Submit your own lesson plans to EASE’s X-Change;
- Gain EASE credits;
- Invest your EASE credits in other colleagues’ lesson plans. We’re exchanging!
Also leave your review about the Lesson Plans on our X-Change!
How to create a green energy swimming pool?
Recreation time is very important in a person’s life. Physical activity affects health. Yet the lack of time to leave and arrive from the gym, recreation center, etc. is often a factor that influences us not to recreate enough. Is it possible to make your own pool? Besides from the price, how does the pool affect the environment and what is needed for our pool to be environmentally friendly?
The whole project was conceived as an entrepreneurial idea.
Project requires teamwork. Communication and collaboration are important in any project.
Project team members must present their ideas and solutions to clients and use digital tools to do so. Students will work in this project in four teams, as employees of a pool construction and maintenance company.
The first team has the task to research the colors for swimming pools, choose the optimal color of harmless, and offer the customer three options. The buyer chooses the optimal offer.
The other team is tasked with researching pool covers when the pool is not in use. They will make three offers depending on the material and color used in making it. The buyer chooses the optimal offer.
The third team is tasked with exploring ways to maintain pool water quality. The options available to the third team are a) quality maintenance chemicals and b) filtration system. The third team must offer the buyer the optimal offer for option a) and the optimal offer for option b).
The fourth team investigates: a) the issue of water consumption b) the impact on the environment with the option of heating and supplying the water purification pump with solar energy.
At the end of the project, students will prepare a presentation where they will present their offers, explain why they are good and offer the customer optimal solutions. Students will present their project on the school website.
